Last night I got the yarn from my Mom & Dad for Bad Penny - it finally made it's way through the mail to their house. I'm excited to start on the sweater, but realized I should probably wait until I have the baby so I can get some accurate measurements. Maybe I'll just swatch it in the meantime.
Then today, I received my first craftster.org Birthday swap package - this one is from girlfriday who fulfilled my wish for sock yarn and DPNs.
Packed in a squarish box I rec'd my first ever skein of Trekking XXL and Opal sock yarn, plus that coral sock yarn which she said is a local favorite in Austin. A set of DPNs that are much smaller than any I have and some cute stitchmarkers. I love it all.
Knitting on Ali's Girlfriend Shrug is still progressing well - it's a little boring at time, but I really want to finish it. I've also accumulated quite a bit of yarn recently, but for the most part, it's all for specific projects. I'm going to need to start a list and prioritize getting some stuff done.
